When it comes to your job, you never want to feel like you are sucking up to your boss, but it is also important to impress them. After all, your boss is usually the one who provides you with raises and promotions, and it is important to have them on your side. And in fact, the best way to impress your boss it to not suck up at all, but rather, to be absolutely genuine. Of course, part of this “being genuine” is that there must be certain aspects of yourself and your work that you are conveying.
One of the first steps to impressing your boss is to be working at a job that you genuinely enjoy, in order for these other steps to be made easier. And you can set goals in your job if you happen to work at a job that you do not truly enjoy. You will have something specific to work toward in your job is you set goals, and this will have the effect of making your job more enjoyable.

It will become much easier for you to start showing up to work earlier than you have to as you work this job you enjoy or work toward these goals you have set. Of course, you do not need to show up early (or leave late) every day, but you should always try to go over and above. In this way, you will be able to set yourself over and above all the other people you work with!
When it comes to impressing your boss, pay attention to one of the aspects that many people miss: actually listening to your boss when they talk to you. While you are at work, it often becomes easy to start to zone out the things other people are saying. If you make sure you are always making eye contact with your boss when they talk to you, it will make it much easier to absorb everything they say.
You will notice that most of the aspects that apply to impressing your boss stem from simply doing your job well; as you do your job well, the benefits will follow, as your boss will like you more and more!
